Visit to Hampshire Baba Temple

We have been thinking of visiting this temple from a long time. Finally, we decided to drive 31 miles from our place to visit the holy shrine of baba. The drive was a pleasant one, with plantations of soya bean and corn on either sides of the road, it was as if an artist had painted the earth green.

The temple building was originally a church. The exteriors of the temple are very simple, on first glance, any one would mistake it for a church, if it  was not for the board stating 'Shirdi Sai Temple'. Once you enter the temple, you will find a number of excellent paintings depicting baba and his devotees on the walls. The temple even offer an online service known as - 'send a prayer', using which any one can send a prayer, which will then be placed at the feet of baba.
